The SLAC Director Search Committee will hold its first meeting in December 2011, and hopes to conclude the search by fall 2012. This international search will consider both internal and external candidates.
The final decision will be made by Stanford University President John Hennessy and Provost John Etchemendy, with concurrence from Secretary of Energy Steven Chu. However, we strongly encourage members of the SLAC community to provide input by contacting any member of the committee. In particular, we would like to hear what characteristics you believe are important for the next director to possess, as well as names of potential candidates.
Out of respect for the privacy of the candidates, their names will not be disclosed. Only the successful candidate will be named when the search has concluded.
